. >>> this morning, my question, are you ready for some football? plus, i've got more to say about education and a reminder about the long, ugly history of voter suppression. first, how far will republicans really go to block the ballot box? >>> good morning. i'm melissa harris-perry. we have spent the last few weeks telling you about the suppress sieve voter laws hastily passed by republican-led state legislatures claiming to be defending democracy against the threat of voter fraud. we have also told you that the laws themselves are the real threat to our democracy, because they would by design disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of voters. well, on thursday, republicans finally found evidence that the myth of voter fraud is very real and they found it right in their own party. investigators in six florida counties have opened a criminal inquiry into hundreds of cases of suspected voter fraud committed by a gop consulting firm. the republican national committee hired to register republican voters for the november 6th election. the fraud accusations against the firm strategic allied consult
at the time so close to an election. we are hoping for a favorable ruling. we are also on the ground educating people on how to get their ideas as best as they can. the lines at the penndot are two, three, four hours long. disabled people are unable to get the new form of i.d. we hope that judge simpson rules favorably and strikes down this law. >> brenton, you have been all over this from the beginning. i have been following your stories, today in voter suppression. when i hear that the penndot offices are giving out all of this bad information, i'm assuming they are not part of some grand conspiracy. they are just front line workers that can't keep up with the rules. is that right? what are the real challenges to making this at all fair? >> well, consider when the common wealth court hearing started on tuesday. the latest iteration of rules had come down to the penndot workers literally that morning. there was testimony in court that at 7:45, that morning, that a memo went out to the penndot workers telling them, oh, so here are these new rules and policy changes. so there has been plenty of
change these patterns are educating parents and use that getting drunk on the weekends is neither healthy, cool, nor an expected part of american culture. let me talk about treatment for drug use. in to the and 11, 21.6 million people aged 12 and older, that is 8.4%, it needed treatment for an illicit drug problem. of those only 2.3 million receive treatment at a special the facility. often, the reason for not seeking treatment include lack of coverage or an inability to afford it. while we have a long journey ahead with regard to prevention and treatment, the good news is we are embarking on a time when we are to the accessibility to achievement for the affordable care act, after parity disorder services, and we are actively working on quality treatment .hrough samhsa's efforts again, i want to thank you all for your interest today. and thank you for helping us to spread the message of recovery. i will turn the microphone back to dr. clark. >> thank you, pam hyde. since his appointment, r. gil kerlikowske has been a driving force in implementing the policy. he coordinates all aspects of
they are enthusiastic. he has been emphasizing a lot of the issues on things like medicare, cuts to education, tax cuts to the rich. he has been very forceful about contrasting his views on things. they would do all sorts of things. they had some success with it. the way he has tried to paint romney as an out of touch private equity guy who would not know a white working class person it became up and bit them and the nose. romney needed to reach the huge number to be competitive. i think the obama team realized that there are some very opposite things about romney. i think this has been successful. we cannot leave this without saying a word about republican performance. if they had sat down and try to optimize the things they might say that may tick off the democratic party and raise concern, and it probably could not have done much better. way theflects the republica republican capture the elements that are far away from the media voter. social and economic issues, the whole business of paul ryan and embracing this kind of ayn rand approach to american society and economics. it is far away from the po
's education system. they were really exposed to western ideas. they translate the constitution of development of foreign countries in uk and elsewhere into chinese. he reads english very well. now, that's really a wonderful opportunity, and, but these also could be the problem it has if we fail to understand that, this is a generation because of their personal experience they don't want to be lectured. they actually will be more, conducive with and get soft approach to talk for cooperation. but you just use force to intimidate them, they will act very first home. i hope that what i said is important. that if we use force, use just a single-minded lecture, we don't solve the knowledge of china, the china experience when i president preval. they will act very strongly that younger generation, hu jintao generation. i don't like you watched interview. maybe 15 years ago by michael mori interviewed in "60 minutes." this is a remarkable show available online. michael wallis pointed finger at him and said your dick tater. he said several times. he laughed and he said oh, well. but chinese, that's a
to education. >> 48.5% of the slot machine proceeds and 15% of the table games revenues go directly into the education trust fund. that trust fund, even though our gaming regimen has only relatively recently started in maryland, over the last few years, i believe it has already jen yate rated in the -- generated in the neighborhood of $100 million for maryland schools. >> the governor said education funding in maryland has more than doubled from $3.9 billion in 2006 to $7.3 billion in next year's budget. >>> the news edge back in d.c. and a familiar scene today as "occupy" d.c. protestors hit the streets on the anniversary of their demonstrations here in the nation's capital. protestors return to rally against what they call corporate greed. dozens of people representing the so-called 99% marched downtown amid all of the chanting and chaos, protestors say they have only grown stronger and more determined. maureen umeh joins us live from northwest with a closer look at the fight. maureen? >> reporter: will, occupy protestors are making their way back here to a project that is being r
as a politician is hoping to change the game of education, to make it possible for all kids regardless of background or race to get the kind of schooling that will enable them to live their lives beyond a dream. >> kevin johnson of sacramento, california believes the time is now to issue a wakeup call to address the state of education among youth in america. johnson says the real facts are alarming. schools are failing children, which is why it's launched a program called stand up for great schools. it's an evaluational initiative, a fight for kids to achieve a solid foundation in school. >> i thought education was supposed to be my future. >> he believes you can't have a great city without great schools. >> the time is now. we're losing our children. if we as a faith community don't lead the way, then who do we think is going to lead the way. >> kelly: jonathan helped to organize the faith leaders policy summit recently held in atlanta, georgia. he's urging faith leaders and even civil rights leaders in the african-american community to mobilize their churches to help kids, parents, a
representative has gone out too far from the constituency and then educate the elect rate about how the representative sideways with the will with the public opinion of the people. you take that ad that cross roads ran. we were running it in the states talking about how the president passed this stimulus program. the stimulus thing was wildly unpopular and the ads that the super pac can do is hold the president or another elected official to account for what they can. it can't change public opinion. we can identify places where an elected representative is sideways with the constituent and let people know about it. i don't know that i agree with it the premises of the question it's necessarily bad. i think it brings a to light a lot of things people wouldn't otherwise know. >> i think in the credibility product. i-- [inaudible] it would allow challengers and underfunded candidates if you were to just waive a wand to get rid of limits and allow teem contribute as much as they want to the candidates as long as it's disclosed the press and opponent could decide whether or not that is h
on the workers' rights and education is very important, and we need to keep focus on that level of unity because together we can for 30% of the piatt to become pie as we need to work together understanding each community with high priorities that reflect the interest of the common working class. >> i don't want 30% of the pie. i want at least 50. all right, folks, give it up for the panel. [applause] we i want to thank all of you that what this as well. thank you very much. tell your friends and family members to check the voter registration in their state. the first group of states comes in october 6th, the second is october 9th we'd have them check those states because of the are not registered buy then, they will not be about to vote on any other races come november. thanks so much. have a good night. [applause] before you leave i want to add to what rowland said. there is a website called canivote.org. if you go to that website will be able to put in your state, name, address and see if you are registered to vote in your state and if not it will tell you where to go to do that. on behalf of
but to educate and teach you. call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. what would happen if a presidential contender ran on a platform that included as essential ten that he wanted stocks to go higher? what would happen if either presidential candidate came out and said, i think the stock market should break out to all-time highs and buy! i'm going to do my best to get it there. that's something to ponder on the night of the first debate n a day where the averages couldn't punch their way to be higher. dow gaining 12 points. s&p climbing .36%. neither candidate has articulated such a view. but let's pretend for a moment that i was up there representing the cramerican higher stock price party. what would be my eight-point plan to get us to all-time highs? and why the heck do i think it's so important that the president should even have a plan to send stocks higher? isn't that somehow anti-free capitalist or anteamerican? let's start with the importance of stocks in the firmament. the economy is so darn lousy, we don't have much longer -- at the same time the fed wants interest rates down so the economy c
are losing their jobs, homes, decent wages, affordable health care and higher education. our civil liberties are under attack. the wealthy few are making out better than ever. >> this is also about whether our nation continues down the road toward totalitarianism. >> sound unfamiliar? as president obama and mitt romney squared off for the first time, we break the sound barrier by expanding the debate in real time to include two candidates shut out of the major political parties. the green party's jill stein and the justice party's rocky anderson. expanding the debate. this is what democracy sounds like. all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. we are on the road in denver, colorado. president obama and republican challenger mitt romney squared off in denver wednesday night in the first of three presidential campaigns. drilling obama in the polls of several battleground states, romney sought to rejuvenate his campaign with an attack on what he called president obama's policies of trickle-down government. >> i am con
, a viewer wants a little bit more from you on education. they write: i agree r agree with some of governor johnson's point but the view of education is backwards. do you want to clarify your education policy? >> guest: well, as governor of new mexico, i was more outspoken than any governor in the country regarding school choice. i really believe that to reform education we need bring competition to public education. that said, what's the best thing that the federal got could do to improve education in this country? well, i maintain it would be to abolish the federal department of education, established in 1979 under jimmy carter, there is anything from 1979 to suggest that the department of education has been value-add? i would argue know. the federal government gives each state 11 cents out of every cool that the state spends but they tell you have to do a, b, c, and d, and here's 11 cents, and when to accomplish a, b, c, and d, it costs 16 cents. so nobody really recognizes it costs money to take federal money. just get the federal department over education out of education. just get the
involved, because we're trying to get their money. >> it is a matter of public education, and that is where groups like dave's and other organizations that are trying to beat the drums to get americans to understand what is going on, is that what you feel is most important, educational? >> the first thing, in our country, if i had three wishes -- a strong, moral, ethical base. i had that growing up in the depression. a strong family unit in every home. now the divorce rate is over 50%, right? that is destabilizing. when i grew up in the depression of all times, we had the finest public schools in the world and the one thing a democracy must have is a well- educated population. our public schools are at the bottom of the industrialized world. that is the country. the great state of texas, where i went to schools and had an incredible education, is either 47 or 40 night in the 50 states. that is all our responsibility and we can correct that, but with these problems we face now, that is so fundamental about what we must do now, and we cannot pass that off to a house or senate or the state or
now with more, consumer education director for credit dot com. thank you for joining us. how widespread is it? how often does it happen that your credit score as the consumer is different than a score your lender is looking at? >> well, almost 100 percent of the time because typically consumers do not get this course that lenders are using, unless they have already applied for credit and been turned down or charge more for credit, then a disclosure is required, but what most of us are doing is going online, getting an education credit score which can be helpful but is not necessarily the same score the lender is using. lori: so why should i spend a right to purchase by credit score if it is now with the lenders getting anywhere? >> it's a great question. of course we give a free credit score. we know what you spend that money. i think what consumers need to look at is, what is the information telling me about my credit worthiness. what can i improve and what can to improve? you can avenges court. lori: and as to what your saying, but i just want to give money. i want to borro
of education. and the troops to enforce the victory down in little rock. at that point, the democrats had to pretend to care about civil rights. the first civil rights legislation pushed by a democrat -- far more republicans voted for it. it was about 80% republicans. they had voted for every other civil-rights bill. they were liberal democrats. albert gore sr. all of these characters were ferocious opponents of joe mccarthy. robert byrd had 100% rating. do not believe the light they were conservative democrats. there was one of 18 liberal democratic segregationist who became a republican and that was strom thurmond. robert byrd had 100% rating. this line is pulled off by describing the entire south as if it was one state. republicans secretly appealed the democratic segregationist and suddenly we swept the south. republicans took the south when the dixiecrats died out. republicans had been winning the outer southern states since the 1920's. warren harding did pretty well. eisenhower twice. this was before 1964. reagan lost the dixiecrat states. reagan did best with college students, the
in the state. lawmakers say the expansion would raise revenue for education. but how much of the money will actually go to schools. i spoke with the director of the maryland budget and tax policy institute. it is a nonpartisan organization and he says if voters approve the referendum, there should be close to $200 million that goes into the education trust fund. by the year 2016. >> all of the money will go to the education trust fund and will go to local schools. but the state may then use some of the money it saves because it doesn't have to use tax dollars for that school aid, and use that for health care and public safety, and parks and other good things that we depend on from the state. so it helps the state treasury. it will help the budgets. >> right. >> but it is wrong to say that it will increase education aid dollar for dollar. >> so what about job creation? that is another thing that they speak of. the ones who want you to vote in favor of this referendum. head to myfoxdc.com for our entire interview. >> massive automatic federal cuts are set to take effect in three months.
ahead in the education alert, we'll tell you why so many students at one local high school are taking college level courses. >>> if elections were held today, where would marylanders stand on expanded gambling? we'll break down the numbers and more. tfrjts key to the weekend weather, less humid, with mild temperatures. it will be very nice. details just ahead. >>> all right. take a look at that time radar first and fwifgive you three ho worth of radar to show you the weather system and clouds associated with it have moved on. that's progress with that front moving out of the picture. we get into a different air mass. the rain threat, the thing was stalled for awhile. just off to our north and west. we just kept -- we have this rain. we didn't get a lot of rain out of it. it was hanging over the head all the time. some of you did get close to an inch of rain. it was a pick and choose area as far as that's concerned. right now, it's 58 at the airport. inner harbor 62. we have partly cloudy skies. 78 fnt humidity. 29.98 the barometer. still on the low side and falling. still on the proce
for energy policy, education, for jobs. that came across really strong. one comment about $90 billion given to bring jobs where we could have hired 2 million teachers really made a huge difference on that, too. president obama looks like he was uncomfortable. he did not look like he wanted to be there. mitt romney had a good night. whether that will show up at the polls is another story. i think mitt romney has a good shot now. if they get mitt romney in there, it is a win for a america, too. host: of next is bernard in south carolina. hello. caller: how are you doing? i do not understand what the caller was saying because mitt romney did not explain anything. he kept saying he knew how to do it, but he never said how he was going to do it. he brought up a lot about what obama had done, but what is he going to do? if he has a plan to do something, it seems like he ought to lay that plan out for the american people so he can say what he is going to do. to me he is not saying anything. thank you for taking my call this morning. people need to look at the facts and what he is saying before the
. that is 100% incorrect. people need to educate themselves on how congress works. he had 60 votes until august when tent kennedy died. -- ted kennedy. then he had 59. a special election seat was triggered, the election with scott brown, that gave the republicans 41. then we lost senator byrd. that was another vote that we lost. so the president only had a senate for about eight months. in that eight months he was dealing with the worst recession since the great depression. so people need to educate themselves and stop going with these party lines of the democrats controlled congress two years and so on. there's only so much you can do. host: thanks for calling. this on twitter -- on facebook -- gary johnson will be on this program to take your calls in about an hour, 8:30 eastern time. the last call from texas reminds us of the interview with ross belprospero. -- with ross perot. richard spoke with him down in plano, texas. the headline, the u.s. is headed for disaster. the full interview with richard wolfe of "usa today" talking with perot, 9:00 p.m. eastern time. [video clip] >> do you think
or may not have had a high school civics education course. those opportunities are not distributed well in the united states. we cannot assume that young person has had the opportunity to discuss those issues and get registered to vote in my high- school. host: ted joins us from indiana, on our independent color line. are you with us? virginia,n to west democrat line. caller: this is arthur. the corporations are driving the media and that is where we are getting our information from. i have two small kids, one is 1- year-old and the other is four years old. my income is $14,000 per year and don't use food stamps. i hope that this country starts seeing that we don't need to be republican or democrat. we need to be americans. most importantly, you have to look at the president about when he uses a veto and signs laws. he can only sign into law was put in front of him through the congress and the senate and that is where i feel all the problems are at with the donations to campaigns, for the corporations. if you look at wal-mart, they have their factories in china and they pay 13 cents per
on energy and education on the right way to fix the deficit. romney's approach is the wrong approach on taxes on deficit on wall street reform, on medicare and healthcare. >> eliot: on "good morning america," comedian jon stewart said he tried the same strategy in an upcoming debate with bile o'reilly. >> strategy that obama took, it is the rope-a-dope but instead of letting your opponent punch himself out you just get beat up. >> eliot: ouch. piling insult on top of self-inflicted injury, john sununu told msnbc's andrea mitchell -- >> what people saw last night i think, was a president that revealed his incompetence, how lazy and detached he is. >> did you really mean to call barack obama the president of the united states lazy? >> he didn't want to prepare for this debate. he's lazy and disengaged. >> eliot: wow. asked if sununu's comments had overtones, it seems that way. obama's senior adviser david axelrod thinks romney's say what works strategy will ultimately work against him. >> eliot: which had better mean

[ laughter ] >> no, i make fun of him. i may be sitting here later on this hour talking about the third one. peter, help me. [ laughter ] >> so we're going to hear from your calls about debates do they matter, do they make a difference? we're going to talk about that for the rest of the hour. let's go to a little commercial break. presents coverage of the presidential debate. with commentary. >> you're going to hear that used as a major talking point. (vo) the only network with real-time reaction straight from the campaigns and from viewers like you. >>now that's politically direct. >> announcer: heard around the country and seen on current tv this is the
to do as well is educate people making a difference. we now have data on that specifically saying just how much of an impact does it make? take a look at this. spend a minute looking at the full screen. if people are provided exercise advice, look how the numbers change among the african-american. 54.7. lower than the white population. 57.8%. simply by getting some of the education on exercise, nutrition. you've asked about that in the past. we've talked about it. again, the number is lower. we know as well that that education makes a huge difference. >> i want to bring in as well a group of amazing women that i met. >> we're going to talk about this. >> this is my favorite segment. i met a group of enthusiastic women, and they are tackling the obesity problem. they are basically putting on their running shoes. they are putting it on the pavement. this is an organization that's called black girls run. we ran with them. >> reporter: whether you lead the pack or come in dead last, everyone is celebrated. >> it really is about friendship, sisterhood. we're not going to leave any woman beh

bit more accountability. i think if we curtailed some of that and put that towards education and infrastructure -- governor romney says we are going to build a 12 million jobs. what are you going to do? are they just going to come about? >> are you voting for governor romney? >> no, i am not. i'm voting for president obama again. >> charlottesville. go ahead with your comments. >> yes -- >> charlottesville, make sure you mute your television and then go ahead with your comments by otherwise there is a feedback. charlottesville, are you there? >> yeah, i am there. i am an independent voter. i moved to this country five years ago. i was a legal immigrant. when i came here, like president obama says, when we were caught, i did not have nothing to i worked so hard. i got the support of the government, and i am now a biochemistry major and in pre- med. governor romney is not telling the truth, like the president said. yes, he did not perform very well last night, but he was saying the truth. if you are president, if you are a candidate, you owe people the truth, because the truth
states and independent audits will guarantee the money goes where it is supposed to. >> on education, the examiner says, quote, school spending in maryland won't increase. and the capital agrees. the sun conclude, quote, question seven is a bad deal for maryland. check the facts for yourself. vote no on question seven. >> well, we are taking a closer look at the issue this morning. joining us with more insight is neil bergman, the director of maryland budget and tax policy institute. man we're glad you're here today. we're glad you're here today. first of all, just those ads, they sort of, you know, put up against each other, you can just see the message, it is clearly, you know, opposed, and tell us what -- when we're watching those, what to believe and what to take from that. >> the first thing to remember is that the money behind those ads are the competing casino owners. >> okay. >> so they are really fighting to put their customer base and their market share. and they're looking for the arguments that will try to persuade us to vote their way. but of course, there are important
health care is the top social issue. 33% say it's education. but there's also guns, abortion, same-sex marriage. we all know that the economy is actually issue number one with most voters, but social issues still play a big part for voters in making their final decision. joining me now to talk about the potential impact of these issues, cnn contributor maria cardona and amy holmes, anchor of "real news on the blaze." good to see both of you. maria, what's number one in your book in terms of social issues? >> well, it's interesting, because while you mentioned health care, i think a lot of voters also see health care as an economic issue, because that's the number one concern when they look at health care is costs, and what that is going to mean for their family. so i think health care is a big issue. and in some respects, if it's looked at as a social issue, i think it actually helps the president because he's the one who was seen as putting health care out there and even though the health care act itself is not incredibly popular, pieces of it -- the fact that those pieces have ac
to sacramento, they'll cut education again. here's a new approach. prop thirty-eight sends billions in new education dollars straight to our local schools, and guarantees the politicians can't touch it. thirty-eight will restore the education cuts from sacramento. so remember this number. thirty-eight. >>> this portion of the news brought to you by your local volkswagen dealer. >>> california ford dealers is a proud sponsor of the high school game of the week. >> good evening, everybody, one week from tonight baseball will hold the two wild card playoff teams and the as tonight took another step to make sure they he get an invitation to that party. fans still doing the bernie in front of the mariners tonight. coco crisp missed the last 9 games with an eye infection, that's his lead. he was 3 for 4 tonight. 3rd inning, steven drew. oakland has 189 homers. seattle couldn't break through and watch this. the rookie a 5 tool player. we haven't even seen his full potential yet as the as beat seattle tonight. la angels won so the magic number over them is 4. that means the as magic number over ta
